Photos and Description of the Mentone vacation cottage rental

A 4 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath Set On 2 Acres Of Mountaintop Terrain

Whatever season you would like to vacation, The Burren offers lovely scenery with a wide range of nearby attractions. Our cottage has all the comforts of home, including a dishwasher, microwave, washer, and dryer. Relax next to the stone fireplace on cold days, or enjoy the breeze on our screened porch in the summer. A hot tub is outside, to soak and enjoy the scenery, as well as a fire pit to roast marshmallows or hot dogs. An electric grill is also on the deck, ready for the steak lover. Kids will enjoy sliding on the zip line in the woods behind the house, or hiking around to discover the campfire site on top of the cliff. There are several hiking trails, as well. Cloudmont Ski resort is close by for those days it's cold enough to make snow.

There is plenty to do at The Burren, a Celtic name for a rocky place. Our house is in the middle of a tumble of giant boulders left over from glaciers millenia ago. Spend a little time climbing on them, or venturing up the cliffside at the back of our property, and you might find small bits of petrified wood or quartz. Birders will especially enjoy the wildlife. For relaxing, we have rockers, a hammock, a hot tub, and a fire pit to roast marshmallows.

Mentone is a small community located high atop Lookout Mountain. Our cottage is located equal distance between Desoto State Park and Desoto Falls, both of which are not to be missed. A little further past Desoto State Park is Little River Canyon. Mentone itself has many great restaurants, antique shops, and art galleries. We have a small zoo, a dude ranch for riding, and two golf courses, as well as the only ski slopes in Alabama. There is so much to do nearby, but Mentone is also about 20 miles from Fort Payne, AL, which has a hospital and the bigger chain businesses. About an hour's drive north is Chattanooga, TN, with its famous aquarium.
